4-H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is an exciting, interactive learning experience that engages thousands of youth across the country in conducting the National Science Experiment. The national 4-H NYSD event took place on October 8, 2014.
The University of Arizona developed the 2014 National Science Experiment: Rockets to the Rescue! Students built and launched their own rockets and learned about rocket science and aerospace engineering.
Do you want to design next
year’s NYSD experiment? The LGU and Cooperative Extension System that submits
the winning application will receive a $20,000 award. Do not miss out on this
exciting opportunity to shape the future of the 4-H science community!
All initial proposals are due by
December 11, 2014. Please click the link below for more details:

STEM is the wave of the future. Experts credit technological innovation with almost half of U.S. economic growth over the past 50 years, and nearly all of the 30 fastest-growing occupations in the next decade will require at least some background in STEM.
But, America is falling behind. Today, the United States ranks 27th among developed nations with college students receiving science or engineering degrees. Only one percent of fourth-graders, two percent of eighth-graders and one percent of high school seniors are deemed “advanced” in science. Only 45 percent of U.S. high school graduates in 2011 were ready for college work in math and 30 percent were ready in science.
For more than 100 years, 4-H has been at the forefront of teaching young people about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Our hands-on programs empower youth and provide them with opportunities to grown, learn, and become confident kids.
